1 Often people who are against homosexuality attribute it to upbringing or culture and say that in nature it doesn't exist. But it does exist in nature and we don't really know why it exists. But maybe it's simply that we have attributed the act of sex just for reproduction, but that it also has other goals - social goals, hierarchy, bonding, family - like it is for us, really. None of us only mate or make love to reproduce.
2 [on her one-woman show] I came up with the idea of 'Green Porno'', and the funny name came about because they had all these shows called 'Green Homes', 'Green Transportation' - all about environmental ways to live. So I said, as a joke, "Well, we don't have Green Porno", and the name stuck for better or for worse. It was very catchy, but we thought we could never find a sponsor. Some people are intimidated by it and they don't come. We tried to change it but it was too late. It was too catchy. Everything I do now is called 'Green Porno'.
3 [on the Internet] The web is a double-edged sword. It has a huge potential for distributing content, creating contacts. There are a lot of advantages. The problem is that money is spent on technologies, not on content.
4 I like to see a film where I don't need to look at the titles to know who did it, where one image is enough to say this is David Lynch, this is Alfred Hitchcock, this is Spike Lee.
5 There's nothing wrong with modeling, except that it doesn't last. I had the stereotype most people have, that it's stupid, but it wasn't stupid at all. I loved spending a day with Richard Avedon. People who are so artistic, so intelligent -- you are interpreting what they are trying to express. You have taken a trip into this brain, you are a tourist in this fantastically interesting brain. People always say to me that I do such strange films, but it's not that I'm looking for something so different necessarily, it's simply that I meet a person who strikes me as intelligent and interesting and I want to take a trip into their brain.
6 There is no question for me about the Electra complex. You know, exaggerated love of the father - I have it, or some version. I loved my mother, but I was my dad's girl.
7 When I was hot as a model, I always knew my entire schedule for the next eight months in advance, every moment was planned and filled. And this lasted for 10 years!
8 If you go to a therapist, they say, 'Are you sure? How do you feel about your wrinkles?' And I say, 'I don't know, because I don't really see them.' I see my hands, but I don't see my face, so it's not a torment. I only see it for five minutes in the morning when I brush my teeth! When you read women's magazines you always read about this drama of getting old, about anti-aging cream and plastic surgery and whatever else. But I think if you're independent, like I have grown to be, it's welcome.
